4 Alaska Halibut steaks or fillets (4 to 6-oz. ea.), fresh, thawed or frozen
olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 c. Chardonnay
Cucumber-Dill Sour Cream Sauce (see Recipe Below)
garnish: lemon wedges and fresh dill sprigs

Cucumber-Dill Sour Cream Sauce:
1/2 c. regular, light or fat-free sour cream
1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
2 tsp. grated lemon zest
1 tsp. minced garlic
1 Tbsp. chopped fresh dill or 1 tsp. dried dill weed
1/4 c. grated cucumber (squeeze dry)
salt and pepper
What to do:
1. Make the sauce first (see below) and keep refrigerated. Bring it to room temperature and stir it well before serving.
2. Preheat oven to 450°F. Rinse any ice glaze from frozen Alaska Halibut under cold water; pat dry with paper towel. Heat a large heavy ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Brush both sides of halibut with oil. Place halibut in heated skillet and cook, uncovered, about 3 to 4 min., until browned. Shake pan occasionally to keep fish from sticking.
3. Turn halibut over, season with salt and pepper, and cook 2 min. more. Remove pan from burner and add wine to pan. Place pan in preheated oven and cook for an additional 6 to 8 min. for frozen halibut or 3 to 4 min. for fresh/thawed fish. Cook just until fish is opaque throughout.
4. Transfer halibut to warm plates and dollop with 2 Tbsp. sauce per portion; garnish with lemon wedges and fresh dill. Pass the remaining sauce on the side.
